Building block for spree social networking features (provides authentication and account linkage)
Core for all social media related functionality for Spree. The Spree Social gem handles authorization, account creation and association through social media sources such as Twitter and Facebook. This gem is beta at best and should be treated as such. Features and code base will change rapidly as this is under active development. Use with caution.
#### Spree >= 3.1
gem 'spree_social', github: 'spree-contrib/spree_social'
#### Spree 3.0 and Spree 2.x
gem 'spree_social', github: 'spree-contrib/spree_social', branch: 'X-X-stable'
branchoption is important: it must match the version of Spree you're using. For example, use
3-0-stableif you're using Spree
Install the gem using Bundler:
ruby bundle install
Copy & run migrations
ruby bundle exec rails g spree_social:install
Restart your server
If your server was running, restart it so that it can find the assets properly.
Preference(optional): By default url will be
/users/auth/:provider. If you wish to modify the url to:
/auth/:providerthen you can do this accordingly in your config/initializers/spree.rb file as described below:
Spree::SocialConfig[:path_prefix] = 'member' # for /member/auth/:provider Spree::SocialConfig[:path_prefix] = 'profile' # for /profile/auth/:provider Spree::SocialConfig[:path_prefix] = '' # for /auth/:provider
Login as an admin user and navigate to Configuration > Social Authentication Methods
Click on the New Authentication Method button to enter the key obtained from their respective source, (See below for instructions on setting up the various providers).
Multiple key entries can now be entered based on the rails environment. This allows for portability and the lack of need to check in your key to your repository. You also have the ability to enable and disable sources. These setting will be reflected on the client UI as well.
Alternatively you can ship keys as environment variables and create these Authentication Method records on application boot via an initializer. Below is an example for facebook.
# Ensure our environment is bootstrapped with a facebook connect app if ActiveRecord::Base.connection.data_source_exists? 'spree_authentication_methods' Spree::AuthenticationMethod.where(environment: Rails.env, provider: 'facebook').first_or_create do |auth_method| auth_method.api_key = ENV['FACEBOOK_APP_ID'] auth_method.api_secret = ENV['FACEBOOK_APP_SECRET'] auth_method.active = true end end
You MUST restart your application after configuring or updating an authentication method.
OAuth Applications @ Facebook, Twitter, Google and / or Github are supported out of the box but you will need to setup applications are each respective site as follows for public use and for development.
All URLs must be in the form of domain.tld you may add a port as well for development
This does not seem to be a listed Github item right now. To View and / or edit your applications goto http://github.com/account/applications
The app console is available at https://login.amazon.com/manageApps

It is easy to add any OAuth source, given there is an OmniAuth strategy gem for it (and if not, you can easily write one by yourself. For instance, if you want to add authorization via LinkedIn, the steps will be:
gem "omniauth-linkedin"to your Gemfile, run
2, In an initializer file, e.g.
config/initializers/devise.rb, add and init a new provider for SpreeSocial:
Optional: If you want to skip the sign up phase where the user has to provide an email and a password, add a third parameter to the provider entry and the Spree user will be created directly using the email field in the Auth Hash Schema:
SpreeSocial::OAUTH_PROVIDERS << ['LinkedIn', 'linkedin', 'true'] SpreeSocial.init_provider('linkedin')
3, Activate your provider as usual (via initializer or admin interface).
spree/users/socialview to render OAuth links in preferred way for a new one to be displayed. Or alternatively, include to your CSS a definition for
.icon-spree-linkedin-circledand an embedded icon font for LinkedIn from fontello.com (the way existing icons for Facebook, Twitter, etc are implemented). You can also override CSS classes for other providers,
.icon-spree--circled, to use different font icons or classic background images, without having to override views.
